Recent reports have suggested that Mesut Ozil might be on his way out of the club as early as January,2020. However, in a recent interview with David Ornstein of the Athletic, UK. The playmaker spoke about why he signed the new deal, his love for the club, and how he intends to see out his contract.
“When I signed my new deal, I thought about it very carefully and said it was one of the most important decisions of my career. I didn’t want to stay for just one or two more years, I wanted to commit my future to Arsenal and the club wanted me to do the same.”
“You can go through difficult times, like this, but that is no reason to run away and I’m not going to. I’m here until at least 2021.”
“Wenger was a big factor in me joining Arsenal but ultimately I signed for the club. Even when Arsene announced he was leaving, I wanted to stay because I love playing for Arsenal and that’s why I’ve been here for six years.
“When I left Real Madrid, it was a really tough time for Arsenal. But I always believed in what we could do and together we delivered. Recently things have been difficult and a lot has changed. But I’m proud to be an Arsenal player, a fan and I’m happy here.
Whenever people see me in the street I always say, ‘This is my home’. I’m going nowhere.”
With this comments, it has shown that Ozil isn’t going anywhere anytime soon. His creativity is important for the team, and the fans will look forward to seeing him work well with Unai Emery.
